Designer Patricia Urquiola
A narrative which is the natural continuation of the Lowland project. The central theme of Highlands is movement, the innate potential for verticality of the backrest and armrests. Two possible positions, using a smooth, almost organic movement which is never mechanical. Flexibility which inevitably renders the elements modular. The surfaces and the various elements of upholstery, the tailoring, the stitching detail on the covers, and the care used all combine in this highly expressive piece. A tribute to the couture-spirit of both the designer and the company.
